2017 Municipal State Aid Project - Texas Avenue

updated: Monday, April 17, 2017

Texas Avenue between Minnetonka Boulevardand W. 36th Street will be closed to through traffic starting Tuesday, April 18. This closure is expected into November 2017. The detour for Texas Avenue is Louisiana Avenue.

This closure is required for reconstruction of CenterPoint Energy's 24-inch gas main. Once CenterPoint has completed enough of its work to allow space for the city's contractor, the city will begin reconstruction of Texas Avenue.

Vehicle traffic will be detoured to Louisiana Avenue. The Metro Transit bus route that uses Texas Avenue will be moved to Sumter Avenue for the duration of the closure. Any questions about relocation of bus stops can be directed to Kevin Martin with Metro Transit at 612.418.2735 or kevin.martin@metrotransit.org.
